Strathclyde Police from Glasgow, UK, was compelled to shut down its website
because of the fear of virus attack from Chinese hackers.
The website was shut down in order to enable the IT department of Strathclyde
Police to examine the threat after some web links appearing on the website
redirecting users to a website known for circulating viruses.
The Police officials stated that their computer experts had come across an
irregularity, but had ruled out any virus attack and claimed that no one who had
logged on their website would have put their system at danger, as per the news
